Before going into the concrete steps of ECVET implementation (Before, During and After Mobility) it is important to consider, more broadly, bodies and organisations involved in the mobility process. National and international partnerships form the backbone for implementing ECVET. However, a broad range of potential partners exists, across different European countries, each with differing levels of responsibility in terms of the management, development and delivery of qualifications and qualifications systems.
Consequently, where an education or training provider is looking to introduce ECVET to (new or) existing mobility processes, it is important that they:
- Know the ECVET actors in the sending country (national partners).
- Know the ECVET actors in the receiving country (international partners).
- Map the roles and responsibilities of partners in the sending and receiving countries.
- Gain and maintain the trust of these partners.
The attached Checklist for ECVET Mobility Partnerships provides a basic overview of the issues that organisations and institutions should consider when building or establishing an ECVET mobility partnership.
Additional information can also be found in the section Key ECVET Actors.
